To women, being wrong or right is not important. What is important is that they feel that certain things are right or wrong. Whether they really are or not is of no consequence. She’s not trying to be right at all costs. She’s trying to feel good, avoid painful confusion and cognitive dissonance and probably to keep from falling into depression or killing herself. If women do this to keep from killing themselves and to keep on trucking in life with a happy smile, I’m not going to fault them.
Female Emotional Logic:
Is this idea true or false?
Does it make me feel good, calm, comfortable and at ease? Does it line up with the way I think the world should be, not how it is? It is true.
Does it make me feel bad, depressed, confused, suicidal, or anxious? Does it conflict with the way I think the world should be (not how it actually is, as this is of little importance to women)? It is false.
In other words, to women, there’s no such thing as the ugly truth. If it’s ugly, it’s untrue. Real simple.
And to some extent, there are no such thing as pretty lies, though they definitely grow more cynical and less utopian as they grow older. If it’s pretty, it’s true.
Women are utopians. If you understand one thing about women, understand this. And pretty lies are the very definition of utopia.
It’s not that it’s irrational logic so much as it’s what I call emotional logic – the logic is emotionally driven and it is logical in an emotional sense. When men say women are irrational what they are really saying is that women are using emotional logic instead of the logic of pure, cold, objective thought.
